Watercress Salad with Roasted Tomato Dressing


I think I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like to cook on Fridays. Any other day I have no problem with it and often look forward to it. But on a Friday, the last thing I want to do is make anything that requires anything over incredibly minimal effort. We tend to go out or eat a crockpot meal on Fridays because of this.

Tonight, I decided to make a really simple meal. I grilled up some chicken (marinated in EVOO/balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper and Italian seasoning) and placed it on top of Tyler Florence’s watercress salad with roasted tomato dressing and goat cheese croutons. By the way, they are not really croutons so much as crostini with goat cheese. But bread + goat cheese under any name = good in my book.

This was a really simple, really good, healthful meal. I really liked the tomato dressing as something different than the ordinary vinaigrette. I wasn’t necessarily blown away by it but it was refreshing and flavorful. I’d make it again. The only thing I did differently was double the garlic.
